I’m still so, so happy it’s fall (although I need to sweep the leaves off my back porch). This week we’ve been talking about scary ingredients in cosmetics, my monthly favorites for November, why “No More Tears” makes me want to cry and why pumpkin is so good for your skin. Here’s what I’ve been reading+enjoying elsewhere, but I have to warn you–there’s some frightening information on this list!
- 7 Beauty Ingredients to Avoid Like the Plague by Katherine Butler for EcoSalon. Nice way of breaking down the biggest offenders and why they’re bad for you!
- Another piece about the link between parabens and breast cancer, from The Green Beauty Guide. Of all the icky beauty ingredients, parabens scares me the most. (Ask me tomorrow and I might have a different answer, but parabens is definitely in my top five most avoided ingredients.)
- In Utero BPA Exposure Significantly More Damaging for Girls, from The Organic Authority. I have a feeling in 50 years we’ll all be amazed that we were using BPA with such abandon way back when.
See you next week! —Aleigh
